"No One Likes Superman Anymore" as written by and Brian Kenig Mazzaferri....
Strong hands, strong mind
Strong all the time
Straightforward and kind
Too simply defined

'Cause no one wants to know
The man who stands for things we outgrow
He's too noble and too blind
We're all older now
And we don't need someone to care about
The innocence we left behind

Don't touch that dial
Its just that goodness is out of style

Beat dark, beat cold
(So conflicted)
No hand to hold
(Heart constricted)
Dark knight bright soul
(We're addicted)
No room here for the bold

'Cause no one wants to know
The man who stands for things we outgrow
He's too noble and too blind
We're all older now
And we don't need someone to care about
The innocence we left behind

And what if he can fly?
Hey well so can I
Jet Blue or United Airlines
And who cares if he's strong?
All we see's the wrong we've done
Reflected in his eyes

'Cause no one wants to know
The man who stands for things we outgrow
He's too noble and too blind
We're all older now
And we don't need someone to care about
The innocence we left behind

'Cause no one wants to know
The man who stands for things we outgrow
He's too noble and too blind

    General CommentI think it's a bit more complex than that. It holds superman as the symbol of innocent childhood. It confronts the tendency in most people to turn away from that which reminds them of what they were and what they lost, noting that "goodness is out of style." People don't like Superman because he's too good and reminds them of the bad they do in comparison.

    General CommentThis song is amazing-
    it's pretty much just satirical, IFD likes Superman of course
    (One of their "logos" is a rendition of Superman's)
    I would recommend buying their CD, it is incredibly beautiful.

    General CommentI agree with depricated. Although Jessicahaligh isn't wrong on the satirical factor, or that they like Superman. They seem to love retro, which is cool in a geeky way.
